The World Naked Bike Ride is an annual, worldwide bike ride that highlights the vulnerability of cyclists everywhere and decries society’s dependence on pollution-based transport. It’s also a lot of fun and it’s free for all!
If you’re struggling to understand why thousands of people would ride naked through the streets of Portland, we encourage you to watch this documentary on Portland’s World Naked Bike Ride. We promise you’ll enjoy it.
If the video didn’t answer all of your burning questions, then know that the general consensus is that the World Naked Bike Ride originated as a protest against society’s dependency on oil. Today, especially in Portland, Oregon, many people ride to promote cycling not only as a viable mode of transportation, but a form which should be celebrated!
